Traditional methods in construction lacking an organized and systematic approach are inadequate, and often lead to inefficiency and waste. Sophisticated information and data handling capabilities of an electronic computer offer many helpful ways to produce a better control in construction management of projects for less money. Computer applications in design phase of the project are very helpful. During construction phase of the project, computer serves as a powerful tool in organizing the three major areas: logistics and material, contract administration, and project scheduling and cost control. Future promises greater research in building information systems. /Author/
